UCLA Basketball: The Bruins should be the West Coast version of Michigan next year – young, talented, and scary enough to possibly make a run at the Final Four. Sure, the Bruins were dealt a tough loss when Tyler Honeycutt (3rd leading scorer, 2nd leading rebounder) decided he’ll test the NBA waters. No matter. The Bruins didn’t have a senior on the roster, and in addition adding a Top 75 recruit next year, Ben Howland’s team will add the Wear Twins (who transferred from North Carolina). Between the Twins and husky Josh Smith, the Bruins are going to pound some people inside next season. With Derrick Williams leaving for the NBA and Washington losing three key seniors, expect the Bruins to win the Pac-10. [LA Times]
